yep, you read that right.

so how i keep my greasy cheeks from dirtying up my lcd screen when using the view finder. Yeah i know i can turn it in an close it.

when i go to chimp outdoors son a sunny day the lcd is hard to see now that its all greasy. Cant imagine what it will be like in summer with the sweat.

for some reason i didn't seem have this problem on the XS.

do screen protectors work, or should i keep some kind of microfiber cloth handy?

... try wearing makeup & shooting. you just need a cloth my friend.

but you are right... I don't remember the screen of my 30D ending up quite as 'smeary' as the 5DmkII screen does... because of the different size, different coating... who knows.

Eyepiece extender?
Worked for me for a while on my 5D2, but I got tired of it so took it off again. I find I mostly avoid the smudges if I rest the eyepiece against my eyebrow.
Still, keep a cloth handy :)

I would use a microfibre cloth, actually I use microfibre for all camera/lens cleaning tasks nowadays they are great!

Doesn't the extended eyepiece crop what you see in the viewfinder?

If it does I haven't noticed it on my 50D. But I still get greasy nose prints. +1 on the microfibre cloth. I have one at all times. Great for lenses, LCD, and glasses. Glasses constantly get smudged from the rubber eyepiece.

It doesn't crop it, but it does make it smaller. I removed the plastic lenses from the extender so it became simply a spacer.

In addition to what's been said, I've also become a fan of using the Giottos Schott glass screen protectors on any camera where they'll fit. I'd rather be dirtying and cleaning something easily replaceable instead of the camera's lcd.

Especially where it's something you know you're going to smudge up on a regular basis.

I have ZAGG Invisishield put on all my stuff. Phones, GPS, cameras etc. It's saved my phone a few times from keys in my pocket. I've had it on my 60D from day one. I've had the same problem and use the inside of my shirt if needed when I don't have a cloth. I don't ever worry about scratching the screen now. Even if I were to scratch the screen now oh well, it's $15 bucks to replace the ZAGG. Now that I've had the Invisishield on my phone it seems like the grease wipes off the protector easier than the glass or whatever it's made of. Usually it seems to just move the grease around without it.

Haha, every time I take a picture and try to look at the lcd I can't help but think that there's got to be a better way :)

I have the giotto schott glass too. You can prevent smudging by taping a cotton ball to the end of your nose.

Sunglass hut sells a glasses cleaning kit for about $12 that has a good microfiber cloth and their awesome cleaner in a small pump bottle that is safe for all types of glass and polycarbonate surfaces. They also come in a nice compact case. I just use a shot of the cleaner into the cloth (never directly onto something electronic obviously...) and it will clean up the screen really well. I've used them for years on computer/phone screens and they work great.
